1. maemo PC connectivity v0.1 (Beta)

Maemo PC connectivity packages are tools and other components developer needs to install into his Internet Tablet to enable connectivity between developer PC and Internet Tablet. This first beta release of maemo PC connectivity includes very basics e.g. mainly just components needed for setting up USB networking with ssh. Next version (planned to be released on March) will include more functionality to enable, for example, disk mounts between Internet Tablet and PC.

Maemo PC Connectivity components can be installed from maemo Chinook extras repository e.g. install maemo-pc-connectivity version 0.1 package to the Internet Tablet. Notice that you need to manually configure USB networking on host PC side. Instructions how to do that can be found from following how-to "Setting up USB

2. maemo ESBox plugin for Eclipse IDE v1.3.6 (Beta)

Maemo ESBox plugin for Eclipse IDE integrates maemo SDK Scratchbox based development environment to the Eclipse development environment. ESBox plugin supports application developers using C, C++ or Python programming language. Developers are able to do all their development work inside Eclipse, from starting the project using template to packaging final application into maemo installation package.

Maemo ESBox plugin can be installed from ESBox project home page from maemo garage using standard Eclipse plugin installation.

3. maemo Pluthon plugin for Eclipse IDE v0.1.7 (Beta)

Maemo Pluthon plugin for Eclipse IDE integrates Eclipse IDE development environment to the Internet Tablet so that maemo Python developers do not need to use maemo SDK and Scratchbox as development environment. Maemo Pluthon plugin fully supports application development process with Python where developer develops and tests his Python application directly with Internet Tablet.

Maemo Pluthon plugin can be installed from Pluthon project home page from maemo garage using standard Eclipse plugin installation.
